Written by Claire Fayers
Twelve-year-old Brine Seaborne is a girl with a past–if only she could remember what it is. Found alone in a rowboat as a child, clutching a shard of the rare starshell needed for spell-casting, she’s spent the past years keeping house for an irritable magician and his obnoxious apprentice, Peter.
When Brine and Peter get themselves into a load of trouble and flee, they blunder into the path of the legendary pirate ship the Onion. Before you can say “pieces of eight,” they’re up to their necks in the pirates’ quest to find Magical North, a place so shrouded in secrets and myth that most people don’t even think it exists. If Brine is lucky, she’ll find her place in the world. And if she’s unlucky, everyone on the ship will be eaten by sea monsters. It could really go either way.

Thirteen-year-old aspiring screenwriter/director Lissa Black isn’t thrilled when her parents move the family from NYC to the sticks of Freeburg, PA. At first, it seems like her only entertainment will be playing the twisted version of Candyland called Monsterville found in her basement, and learning Boy Scout knots from her new neighbor Adam. But when a walk in the woods lands Lissa face-to-face with a swamp monster hungry for brains, and then a Sasquatch that moos, she realizes that Freeburg isn’t so boring.
With Adam’s help, Lissa catches the culprit behind the drama: a shape-shifting goblin who’s escaped from the monster world of Down Below. At first, Lissa has big plans to use Blue as the star in her first real movie, but then monsters snatch her little sister on Halloween. Now Lissa and her new friends must venture Down Below to stage a rescue – and face the real Monsterville, which is anything but a game.
